This was our fourth visit to Coral Reef Club and certainly won't be our last as we are already planning to return next year. The O'Hara family members are consummate hosts and hoteliers with charming and considerate staff with the whole place is looked after beautifully. The food seems to get better every time we go there, though, for the...

We have just come back from a week at this lovely lovely hotel - we have stayed in lots of places as a family but have never found one as close to perfection.

We stayed at the Coral Reef for three nights as part of a Caribbean honeymoon. The hotel was charming, the gardens lovely, the staff attentive and efficient, the food excellent, the beach good for both swimming and a little light snorkelling. Absolutely nothing was less than excellent and all the staff were just so friendly and anxious that you should...

My husband I stayed at Coral Reef for 8 nights, after deciding to switch hotels shortly before our arrival in Barbados. What a great decision! I will try and summarise in different sections to give a comprehensive review: Atmosphere/guests: The hotel manages to feel like a luxury hotel whilst retaining that special Caribbean charm. It's large enough and spaced out...

My first time to Barbados and the Coral Reef Club was a perfect choice. We stayed in a garden cottage suite and I can honestly say it was stunning. The service was excellent, the food great and the gardens, simply beautiful. Can't wait to return.

This is a fantastic boutique hotel that appeals not only to couples but to families as well. The rooms are authentically opulent ( Cottages are definitely the best choice for room!!), successfully capturing the traditional Bajan style, and among them, the vast stretches of luscious garden positively add to the truly relaxing atmosphere. The staff are caring, thoughtful, and strive...
